I truly hope Don is okay and just taking a precaution - perhaps Glenn's passing made him more aware of his age and mortality, and he doesn't want to push himself. After Glenn, though, like Dreamer said, I have this nagging thought that maybe it is more serious than he is letting on, but maybe I'm being paranoid.

I have to think that it's more than a cold. Most bands don't cancel concerts for something as minor and the Eagles were no exception. But, that's just my opinion!

If it affected his voice, a cold would be serious enough to cancel.

I guess if he also has acute laryngitis it could cause them to cancel some shows. That would make more sense to me than a cold. However, it's hard to say since there was no specifics given in the public announcement. It is harder to fight off sicknesses the older you get for sure, so we will just have to wait and see.

BTW - I renamed the title of this thread to be more descriptive since initially only one show was rescheduled.

I sure hope I'm wrong, but it does concern me a bit.
Glenn had what looked like a very bad cold the last night he played here in Dublin in 2014.I noticed he cut the talk between songs to a minimum and did not hold all the notes. He was running through boxes of tissues like they were going out of fashion!But the show went on. So it is possible.
However I suppose they are all 5 years older not and I guess Don is taking no chances and is resting up. I hope he feels better soon.

Of course, I'm also glad to hear that Don has recovered - wishing him continued good health.
